History of the WA

The Woldingham Association was founded in 1899 by a group of like-minded residents seeking to protect the unique environs and aspects of Woldingham; the WA continues to serve the residents of the village through the promotion and protection of the original objectives of the company and Gilford Covenants of which it was made custodian. The covenants apply to the majority of properties in the village.

The WA had been the only voice for the village, covering conservation and preservation, for over 100 years.  Following the creation of the Woldingham Parish Council (WPC) in 2000, the Association continues to offer supportive and independent representation of  the interests of the village’s residents including planning and development. As a result the WA enjoys a long-established and highly respected relationship with WPC, Tandridge District Council and neighbouring Resident’s Associations, as well as national bodies including:  Council for the Protection of Rural England, The National Trust, The Woodland Trust and the London Green Belt Council.
